glorious weekend down south. josh came back with her. welcome back to amy, too. sam, lara. we're all here. and talk about a little drama down in alabama. little ethan is safe. rescued by the fbi. he was having a great time last night. surrounded by his toys. >> it's been a harrowing week for little ethan. it all ended with the fbi raiding that underground bunker to free him from the man who held him captive. police were watching every moment on that little camera. they only went in when they thought the 5-year-old was in imminent danger. abc's gio benitez has the latest from midland city, alabama. gio, good morning. >> reporter: amy, good morning. so often, we're telling stories with truly tragic endings. but this day is different. this story is about a little boy's rescue. overnight, 5-year-old ethan, seen here in a photo obtained exclusively by abc news, was evaluated at a nearby hospital. he arrived sitting up on a
stretcher. and this morning, his family tells abc news, he is in good spirits and appears unharmed. even playing with his toy dinosaur. >> ethan, he is doing fine. he's laughing, joking, playing, eating. >> reporter: the fbi says, after a week-long standoff, it finally made the call monday to raid the homemade, underground bunker, where 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes was holding the child hostage. sources tell abc news, the decision came after agents managed to insert a small, high-tech camera into the bunker to monitor dykes' movements. >> mr. dykes was holding a gun. fbi agents, fearing the child was in imminent danger, entered the bunker and rescued the child. >> reporter: in a matter of minute, just after 3:00 p.m., agents used an explosive charge to blow open the bunker's entrance. they killed dykes, before taking
the boy to a nearby hospital by ambulance. abc news has learned in the course of a week-long standoff, the fbi had created this mock bunker near the site. and had been using it to train agents for different scenarios to get the boy out. still, monday's raid was not the ending police had sought. they spent days negotiating with the decorated vietnam veteran, through a ventilation shaft. sending food and toys to the boy, while addressing the h hosta hostage-taker as mr. dykes. when the talks finally broke down, police say they had no other choice but to catch dykes by surprise. incredibly, ethan's mother had asked police days ago, not to kill dykes. >> she put her hand on the officer's heart and said, sir, don't hurt him. he's sick. >> reporter: you know, friends and family tell us that little ethan is a boy that loves to be hugged. and you can bet, he's getting those hugs today. george? >> thanks, gio. joining us are ethan's great aunt and uncle.
debra cook and berlin enfinger. thanks for joining us this morning. take us back to that moment when you first heard he was safe. >> i was telling some of the family that, you know, if i could, i would do cartwheels all the way down the road. i was ecstatic. everything seemed like it was just so much clearer. you know, we'd all been walking around in a fog. and everybody was just -- they were excited. there's no words to put how we felt and how relieved we were. >> what more can you tell us about what he's doing? i know you saw him last night. >> he's happy to be home. he's very excited. like i said, he's happy to be home. and he looks good. he looks good. >> deborah, we heard he was playing with his toy dinosaur last night. >> he was. he was. he was having the biggest time. he had several toys he was playing with. and he was our ethan. >> what has his mom told you about how he's doing?
>> she just said he's doing great. >> what more can you tell us about this man, mr. dykes? there's been reports that he was kind of a menacing figure, brandishing a rifle at times. even beating a dog to death at some point. did you know him at all? had you seen him? did you know about this behavior? >> only through the news media. we didn't know him personally. we just heard about how some of the things that he did, his actions. he seemed to have some issues. >> so, he was pretty well-known in the community, deborah? >> he was pretty well-known here. but i mean, you know, in this small community here, i had never heard of him before. >> but others had. and we know that ethan's mom had been hoping that mr. dykes would not be killed in this standoff because she said he's just a sick man. did she talk to you about that?
>> like i said, as far as he goes, we were given just very little information on him. >> tell us a little more about ethan. i know you call him your little buddy. >> he was -- he's a special child. he's 90 miles an hour all the time. he is a very, very loving child. and when he walks in a room, he just lights it up. he's special. he's special to the whole family. >> and i know he loves your truck. >> we missed him. >> yes, he does. he's always asking me to take him for a ride. and i do. i have a couple of times. he just -- you know, he's just so excited about it.
like i said, we try to -- he's so special to all of us. and not only to all of us, but to the whole community. we try to spend as much time with him as we possibly can. i mean, i just can't say how much he means to all of us. >> i'll bet you all are getting ready for a great birthday celebration tomorrow. >> oh, yeah, oh, yeah. >> yes. >> we heard that there was a lot of birthday cards being collected. and i'm sure it will be a day that he won't forget for a long time. >> well, wish ethan happy birthday for us. thank you. >> we will. >> we sure will. and thank you. >> thank you. >> it's going to be some party, huh? >> turning 6. and he's with his family. and that's what counts. let's go to josh for the other top stories. >> that's terrific news. good morning to all of you. we're going to begin with a wake-up call for drivers.
we just learned that gas prices have skyrocketed. biggest jump at the pump in years. hitting a record for this time of year. and cecilia vega is here to explain why. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning. one week ago, check this out. the average price, $3.36 a gallon. this morning, we're all the way up to $3.54. that's a whopping 18-cent increase. what's behind this? oil prices are on the rise, kicking the prices up. refineries are doing maintenance. throw in the tensions in the middle east, and the prices are on the rise. this is whopping. we are nearly paying $3,000 just to fill up our tank every year. a massive 4% of the family income, josh. not good for the family budget, especially if we hope to keep fueling what has been a very fragile economic recovery. >> no pun intended. thank you for that, cecilia vega. meanwhile, we're burning more of that very expensive gas
sitting in traffic than ever before. the average american spends what amounts to one week in traffic every year. the most congested cities, washington, l.a. and san francisco. many drivers in the d.c. area need to leave almost two hours early just to make it to work on time. and five years after the financial crisis sank the economy, the wall street credit agenesis may finally have to face the music. the justice department is suing standard & poor's, saying the agency ignored its own standards and gave its blessings for the toxic securities. s&p says it's being unfairly punished. and a horrifying attack at the circus. american trainer alexander crispin. performing in front of a crowd. one of the tigers attacks him.
crispin, just 35 years old, would later die from neck injuries. and a big scare at a construction site in boston. a worker fell, plummeting 30 feet from that building. not, however, seriously hurt. he landed, however miraculously, on a pile of bubble wrap, the material being used to cover the scaffolding. >> what a sound that made. >> it likely saved his life. and please, don't try that at home. finally, you might want to try this at home. a very lucky fishing trip for a couple from arkansas. on the way out of town, stephen weaver and his wife bought a lottery scratch ticket. it was a winner. a big one. $1 million big. so, on the way home, they stopped at the same store and buy another ticket. >> no, no. >> and take a look. the check for $1 million. and another check for $50,000. >> you have to be kidding me. >> they're going to use the cash to pay some bills and save for retirement. i'm going to announce that "good morning america" is going on the road. and we're coming to arkansas. immediately. >> a little fishing trip.
>> did they go back for a third time or retire? >> maybe you push yourself away. i don't know. >> i say you're looking at it going, it's all good. we don't need to go back. >> thanks. we have the latest on sarai sierra. she's the new york mom found murdered in turkey. as authorities piece together her final hours to find the killer. abc's nick schifrin spoke to her husband. he joins us now from istanbul. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, george. today, steven sierra is coping with unimaginable sadness, preparing to fly home with her body. her murder still unsolved. this morning, investigators are combing through clues at the crime scene, trying to figure out how the new york mother's body was dumped inside a cave at the old city walls. the man who loved her for 16 years told me on the phone, he was consumed by grief. how much do you miss her today? >> i can't put that in words. i've never, ever, in my life, have i had a love like this for
another person. you know? it's a deep, deep love. >> reporter: steve sierra says he's heartbroken. he had always dreamed of spending the rest of his life with sarai. >> she's amazing. i mean, she is amazing. you know? she truly is. just very loving. even with the kids, i mean, she's so loving and caring. >> reporter: he thanked police who are now taking dna samples from 21 suspects, and comparing them to dna found under sarai sierra's fingernails. they are combing through hundreds of hows of surveillance video. that's sierra in a mall, just one day before she was due home. just a couple of hours before she left, she told her family she would come to this bridge to take a few final photos. it's only about a 15-minute walk from her house. but snefr made it. and she was never seen again. >> i would like to know what happened from the time she left her room, to the time she was
going to take pictures of the bridge. >> reporter: sierra's coffin has been moved to a church to prepare for the journey home. in new york, her family is shocked and inconsolable. >> she was going to go on this trip. and i thought -- i hugged her before she left. >> reporter: steve sierra tells me he still has to do one of the hardest things he'll ever have to do in his life. they still don't know if their mom is coming home. and he hasn't had the strength to tell them over the phone. >> cannot blame him for that. it's just going to be agonizing. >> what a sad story. we move on to some of the questions of what caused the blackout at the super bowl. was it beyonce's electrifying halftime show that knocked out the lights? abc's matt gutman is here with a closer look at how it all went down. matt, good morning.
>> reporter: hey, good morning, amy. well, beyonce may have killed it. but she didn't cause the blackout. the utility company had been concerned about decay in the electrical feeders powering the superdome three months ago. and this morning, the ravens set to start their ticker tape parade in a couple of hours. there's one more super bowl mystery afoot. overnight, triumphant and tired, the ravens brought that vince lombardi trophy home to jubilant baltimore. only the trophy that's been kissed, coddled, and cradled by so many nearly didn't make it. >> we hadn't seen this since last night. we thought we'd lost it. >> reporter: he wasn't kidding. the trophy didn't make it to the owners' super bowl party. it was located monday. maybe all of the sets of fingerprints helped track it down. then, there's sunday night's other whodunit. two minutes into the second half. >> one flick of the light switch and we lost power.
>> reporter: twilight. the game stops. players perplexed. "60 minute" cameras caught it all from the control room. >> uh-oh. we lost lights. >> reporter: coach john harbaugh, furious. a near record 108 million americans watching, wondering. could it have been beyonce's megawatt performance? >> beyonce blew the electric in the super dome twice i'm told during her rehearsals. >> is that right? >> reporter: was beyonce too electrifying? despite jay-z's tweet. lights out. any questions? officials say it wasn't beyonce's electrifying show that blew the power. >> there's no indication at all that this was caused by the half time show. absolutely none. >> reporter: turns out, beyonce brought her own generators. on twitter, the blame landed on this guy, from the movie "airplane." >> just kidding. >> reporter: and jokingly, the star of last year's halftime show, madonna. the power company says the likely culprit, an old-fashioned power surge. and in december, the stadium
earmarked nearly $1 million to rework the super dome's ele electrical grid. have no fear, beyonce may not become persona non grata anytime soon. >> i know folks in baltimore were celebrating already. but there might be some more reasons for that. >> indeed. we love this story, amy. today, ravens fans are celebrating the win. but not exactly why you might think. a whole bunch of people are getting free furniture thanks to one company who frankly made the wrong bet. take a look. it seemed like a pretty sure bet for this baltimore furniture company. >> baltimore returns the opening kickoff of either half for a touchdown, everything you buy at gardener's super sale before 3:00 p.m. on sunday will be free. >> reporter: but sure enough, when the 49ers kicked off to start the second half, that's exactly what happened. >> 109 yards and a touchdown. >> reporter: now, gardner's is making good on its promise.
$600,000 worth of furniture all free for the lucky buyers who made purchases in the three days leading up to the big game. >> nobody was more surprised than i was when the second half opened and jacoby jones runs the kick off for a touchdown. within seconds, my phone is ringing. >> reporter: customer, tom carter came to collect. >> $763.18. >> reporter: tom and his wife bought a new mattress and box spring and thought, what the heck? they might win it. >> i was scream something loud, you would probably hear me screaming all the way across the city. >> reporter: they'll name the box spring jacoby. congratulations to them. so glad that gardiner's is making good on a promise. and the odds of returning a kick for a touchdown, are about 300-1. probably a zillion-1, it would happen at all for these lucky commerce. everybody wins. >> good publicity. let's go to sam and the weather. >> hey, how's your day going? >> oh. >> oh. >> a little better than that.
>> from "the cincinnati enquirer." these are small, quick-moving clipper systems. we'll show you video out of new jersey. early this morning, light snow falling. it's just enough to be a nuisance. the roads look wet. and you know it as soon as you put the brakes on. they're not wet. thanks for the follow-up questions, everybody. >> you can't show the picture without the questions, right? that's fair. just asking a question. >> a rough morning. okay. in comes -- i'll remember that, josh. in comes an area of low pressure. and several of them that sweep through. from the dakotas to the great lakes, to new england. it's one or two more of those systems, quick-moving clipper-like symptoms. a little layer of snow, some cold air. in the deep south, some heavy rain today. this is, by the way, today's rain -- oh, sorry. the eastern coast is today's rain. the western coast is tomorrow's rain. >> and

everyone can relate to. why is prince harry under fire again? is prince charming starting to lose a bit of the magic? we're going to get right to the dramatic testimony in the breakup murder trial. jodi arias takes the stand and says she did kill her ex-boyfriend. ryan owens has been covering the trial from phoenix. and joins us with all the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. as you know, about all of the legal experts said that jodi arias would have to take the stand to try to convince this jury she killed in self-defense. well, she started her story. the question this morning, will anyone believe her? >> you may come forward and take a seat, please. >> reporter: jodi arias, admitted killer and serial liar. took the stand saying -- >> swear to god? >> reporter: she'd tell the truth. >> how are you feeling right now? >> nervous. >> reporter: she should be. the 32-year-old could face the
death penalty if convicted. her defense attorney wasted no time getting to arias' newest story. that she stabbed and shot her ex-boyfriend in self-defense. >> did you kill travis alexander on june 4th, 2008? >> yes, i did. >> why? >> the simple answer is that he attacked me. and i defended myself. >> reporter: arias looked right at jurors as she told her story. the same jury that has watched her lie to police, over and over. >> i did not hurt travis. >> reporter: the prosecution is hoping the jury will not believe a word out of her mouth. they say arias stalked travis alexander. and then planned the brutal killing of the businessman. arias spent almost two hours on the stand monday. most of it focused on her childhood. with her mother in the front row, she claimed her parents beat her. >> hit you hard? >> it felt pretty hard, yeah.
it left welts. >> reporter: she also testified about early boyfriends she says were processive. the defense is hoping to convince the jury arias was a victim of repeated abuse, who ultimately had to kill to save her own life. arias also tried to explain away this jailhouse interview with the show "inside edition." >> no jury is going to convict me. >> why not? >> because i'm innocent. and you can mark my words on that one. >> reporter: now, telling this jury, that was not as arrogant as it sounded. >> at the time, i had plans to commit suicide. so, i was extremely confident that no jury would convict me because i didn't expect any of you to be here. >> reporter: this jury has taken copious notes since the beginning of this case. but not when jodi arias got on the stand. pencils and papers down, they were riveted. and the main event is still ahead. the fiery prosecutor taking on the woman he calls a
cold-blooded murderer, in cross-examination. it should be something to see. amy? >> ryan owens, thank you very much. for more, let's turn to our legal team. nancy grace and dan abrams, "gma's" legal analyst. dan, obviously, this has been an uphill battle for the defense. what do you make of arias' testimony on the stand? >> i said from the beginning this is a terrible defense. they've made almost no progress thus far. but jodi arias is a great witness. she's a great liar. but she's a great witness. she looks over at the jury at the right times. she pauses at the right times. she thinks at the right times. >> she looks like a librarian. >> she is a great witness. now, i don't know that that's going to hold up on cross-examination. i would doubt it very highly. but they had to put her on the stand for this defense. and considering only seeing two hours of her direct examination, i think she's done perfectly well. >> her attorney had her admit
right away, that she killed travis alexander. what do you think of her testimony so far? >> well, frankly, after watching her on the stand for two hours, i liked her ninja story much better. when she was talking to "inside edition" or "48 hours" when she told the story of the man and woman clad in solid black who came in and murdered travis, as she watched and escaped with her life. she was much more believable then. yesterday, she would look at her lawyer. and then, robotically turn to the jury and say, yes. and turn back to her lawyer. i mean, a mannequin at saks fifth avenue had more life and more feeling. remember, dan, this is a woman who started crying in front of the jury when she saw a picture of a dog. so, when she was trying to remember her own story, she was extremely robotic. >> i didn't view it as robotic. i watched the whole testimony. i thought if you take away everything that has actually been said and you take away the content of her story, which i agree with you, claiming that
this is somehow, now, a suicide as opposed to her claiming she was innocent is impossible to believe. but as a witness, i didn't view her as robotic. i thought she was actually -- >> dan, dan, dan, you're under her spell. >> i am. >> she got to you. >> she did. i am. >> the jodi arias mojo has gotten you. >> i could have been her next victim. >> the abuse. she said her mom spanked her with a wooden spoon. i had to go pick a switch -- my own switch off a tree for my grandmother. i don't think a wooden spoon is going to make a lot of difference. maybe the father slapping her when she stayed out all night. that might get to a jury. and every boyfriend she's had. he cheats or he's terrible. and i'm sure they're going to paint travis alexander in the same stroke. >> they are. and this is the sort of thing where they could have decided to wait until the penalty phase to
have her testify about this, right? >> they did this earlier than usual. and the attorney tried to diffuse one comment, saying she would never be convicted. when she had an earlier interview saying, i'm completely innocent. i'll never be convicted. was it believable, saying she was contemptlating suicide? >> it's like she's saying it in a vacuum. she's saying, i'm innocent. and no jury will convict me. >> that's exactly right, dan. she said no jury will convict me. i'm innocent. travis knows i'm innocent. that's why they won't convict me. can you see back in the attorney conference room. let's see -- they won't convict me because i'm truthful. that won't work. because i was going to commit suicide. >> we're going to have much more. >> he's got to be careful -- i think not to go at her. they'll be able to get her on the facts. he shouldn't be too aggressive. >> i'm sure we'll be back, revisiting this soon. dan, nancy, thank you for being with us. we appreciate it.

so happy to have leeza gibbons with us. author, talk show host, wife, mom, friend. and now has a new book. it's called "take 2: your guide to creating happy endings and new beginnings." glad to see you. glad you got the memo about the purple. looking great and being happy. that's what this book is all about. it's "take 2" and how to capture that happiness when you're going through it. >> we're all going through it. life changes on the way to happily ever after.
people get fired. they get depressed. disillusions. the kids leave home. maybe the kids come back home. things happen. and it doesn't turn out the way we had planned or we had hoped. just like the movie business, "take 2" is not a rehaul of your life. but it's to fix a flub up. it's a chance to make it better. that's what i write about, ways to make it better. >> who should buy this book? who should read this book? >> anyone who gets lost. sometimes we forget our music. and the melody of your song is about to change. if you can let go of that song and know there's something else over here, you're going to be able to show up for yourself in the way that you need to. >> you're really candid about your own struggles in the book. and sort of the lessons that you've learned. you're not an expert. but you've been on a journey. you have a great perspective. you call it not a memoir. you call it life support. >> it's part personal growth, part self-help.
life lesson, lovelesssons. it is a glimpse through my journey. i'm an expert on my life just as we all are on our own lives. once you can grow your courage and show up for yourself and be proud of who you are, that's the biggest part of the journey. these are reminders. how to get there. simple steps. >> you have so many simple steps. you say to find pace setters, role models. you mention robin roberts. >> how many women look to robin as the best example of friendship and faith and always staying focused on hope and living in the power of possibility? that's robin. i talk about that as having a high goddess quotient. nobody has a higher g.q. than robin. when you do that, you can watch victories come into your own life. and it becomes -- we exercise our change muscles, we get really good at changes.
